Brexit on the brink – Boris Johnson scurries to get a Brexit plan in place




Make no mistake, Boris Johnson is under major pressure in the UK to deliver something, anything that will finally bring Brexit to a conclusion.

After last night’s disastrous result for the government, Johnson’s only card left to play is to try and force a General Election.

Ideally for Johnson, he would like to get an overall majority which would ensure he would get his way in terms of what the outcome of Brexit will finally be. If that was the case, and the DUP wouldn’t have a leg to stand on in terms of demanding what they want out of Brexit.

If indeed it transpire that Johnson managed to get an overall majority, he could force through a border in the Irish Sea which would prevent any physical land border from being implemented on the County Louth County Armagh border.

Johnson has gotten a considerable bounce since his election and it’s not inconceivable that he would get an overall majority thus having a border in the Irish sea.
